This week, what’s inspiring Kinsta Development Advocate Analyst and WP Owls co-creator Maciek Palmowski.
A podcast worth listening to:
I'm not a big podcast listener, and there are only a few I listen to. One of those is Delicious Brain Waves. They cover a lot of interesting developer-related topics and they are doing it in an exciting way. I'm also a big fan of The Dev Morning Show (At Night) by Cassidy Williams. It is an excellent series of interviews with interesting people from the developer world.
A concept worth understanding:
Deployment Automation. We are only humans, so it’s natural for us to make mistakes. Thanks to automation we can prepare a repeatable pipeline that will run every time and it will run all the tests each time to make sure we won’t deploy any bugs.
A Twitter account worth following:
There are so many great accounts to follow. (At one point, I created a list of such accounts.) Also, I recommend following WP_Owls. It's a newsletter curated by me so if you looking for a bit more developer-related WP news and articles in one place you should like WP Owls.
An article worth reading:
I would recommend the Practical Guide to Deploying Automation. It's a great article explaining the benefits of deployment automation. A great place to start your adventure.
A habit worth forming:
I'm horrible at forming habits. On the other hand, my current job requires a lot of jumping around from one topic to another so I could say that the only thing I was able to establish is "embracing chaos." It helps to survive in a quickly changing environment.
